    Watching Ajayi ball.

    Yeah I understand that there were attitudinal problems mandating his departure... BUT literally giving away one of the prior year's premier running backs for nearly a 5th rounder? That moron is literally owned by Howie Roseman.

    Like a biatch. Big fumble but jay really runs hard. Phillys line can ball so that helps.

    The Eagles don’t even trust their power running back at the goal line. We’ll be fine without him.

    Matt's got unbelievable pocket awareness, top shelf, but i agree with you that some of his throws have been horrific.

    If Tanny had that type of picket presence, i feel he would be a top 10 or better qb.

    Jones saved two picks with some excellent breakups.

    That's not the point. It's "Trader Mike" our glorified crapologist, (has he ever made a good trade aside from trading up for Revis?) literally giving one of the top RBs in '16 away to Philly ..

    How many years Ajayi got left on those tires? Enjoyed his run style. But life goes on. People were hysterical over Lamar Miller leaving, and he was replaced. I believe Drake is a far better player than Ajayi on burst and speed.

    Drake grew into the position as the year wore on. Now only if he wouldn't run around with his head chopped off looking for a fight.

    I don't think Tbaum just came up and offered Ajayi up for a late 4th. From what I understand we shopped him around for a third with no takers, the Eagles had no third and offered Minny's 4th when Minny was still not doing as good. I'm sure we would have taken a higher pick if one was offered.

    well if that was the case still no reason for a fire sale - you hold onto him until an RB goes down. After the ****show the team put on this season, it's hard to argue that the 53rd roster spot player was indispensable.

    There was a reason Gase wanted him gone. This move you chalk up on Gase, not Tannenbaum.

    Plus that would have only further depleted his trade value.

    I believe it was Adam who pushed for this trade to happen. I'm sure our FO would've loved to get better compensation for Jay, but Adam really wanted him gone so it is what it is. In the end I'm just glad Drake has proven to be a good replacement.

    I hear ya. I'll concede the impetus on to Gase but the poor execution to TBum

    I edited and added but in case you miss it. That would only have driven his trade value down.

    Ajayi was their 2nd/3rd running back.

    He’s awful at pass protection and catching the ball out of the backfield. He was a very inconsistent runner from week to week.

    Surprised Miami got a 4th tbh.

    Whilst I always welcome posts that hold Tannenbaum to account for undermining our entire franchise, threads about Ajayi have been put in the NFL forum all season

    However, please feel free to create a more detailed thread focusing on all of tannebaums many failures @Vaark

    Personally I dont think its too late to change out the front office before free agency.

    Plus keeping him would have further worsened locker room dynamics. Team chemistry on offense went to sheet without Tannehill.

    LOL Ajayi

    Told the NBC crew that he thinks he got traded for 'being too open and honest.'

    Yes, Jay, when you tell the coach that you aren't going to learn your job because you know you're untouchable, that's DEFINITELY too open and honest.

    Technically this thread is about Tannenbaum who is a Dolphin.

    4th round pick is a joke for a pro-bowl back that has such a low salary. Miami screwed themselves like always. The real kicker is when Miami blows that 4th round pick on a bum that never plays.

    Looking back I think Gase made the right call. Our RB production improved without Ajayi, and we got rid of a problematic player with a bad knee.

    The Eagles defense >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> the Falcons defense.

    The Eagles offensive play-calling >>>>>>>>>>>>>> the Falcons offensive play-calling.

    Also, Foles is outperforming Matt Ryan.

    I haven't seen the whole game, but from what I've seen, Foles at least did a credible job as a backup.

    I think the Eagles win this game drama-free with Wentz, though.

    All those people that still regret not picking Ryan - don’t count me in the that group, but wow was the first and second down play calling blah although a better throw to Jones on first...

    The blue balls QB. He had a few bright shining moments last season before reverting back to his default of melting when it's "win or go home"

    LOL Ajayi has under 100 yards from scrimmage, runs for under 4 yards a carry and your upset we went with Drake?

    I was shocked at the trade earlier this year and see that it was 100 percent the right move. Ajayi is no pro-bowler!

    Has gone a bit all in on playoff updates anyway

    But he certainly does suck at his job. Though personally I dont regret getting rid of Ajayi

    Is it true that the pick we received is conditional based on how far the eagles make it? Somebody told me it goes up to a 3rd if they reach nfc championship. I never read that though

    he's one of 3 RBs there so that's misleading. And the theoretical criterion I used was "if a team/could magically look into the 1 year future when making a draft pick wher would they draft that player?" And despite his limitations, on the basis of his 2016 performance Ajayi would likely have been worth a 2nd or 3rd.

    It would have been great to get a higher pick for Ajayi but it's obvious that Drake is a much better all around player and is only going to get better.

    Mistakes have been made, but I don't find that this FO is down right terrible. We had a good draft, added some young pieces to our offense and defense, acquired decent depth and added some stop gap players through FA. I find for the first time in a long time that the Dolphins have a plan.
